a burrito bowl. doug hudson, andrew lumpkin and chris conroy run bicycle companies in colorado. they took me out to red rocks. these guys will watch the debate. andrew hoping for a breakthrough by his candidate, mitt romney. >> i want him to talk about conservative values, especially economically. empowering small businesses. >> reporter: chris used to vote republican. not anymore. >> what really change my mind recently is it seems to have got an way from taking care of the little guy. >> reporter: doug is undecided. >> i'd like to see details both from romney and obama. mainly on tax policy. >> reporter: vice president biden charged team romney would hike middle-class taxes. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans jumped on that, buried by obama? >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of theitis. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be hea
hanks unleashes a big one. >>> plus some scary moments as a sering line drive nails doug fister right in the head. sports is next. you're watching "first look" on msnbc. in america today we're running out of a vital resource we need to compete on the global stage. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university, we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone's ready with the know how we need for a new tomorrow. [ male announcer ] make sure america's ready. make sure you're ready. at devry.edu/knowhow. ♪ games to none lead which gives them a 79% chance of taking it all. let's begin in the second inning. a wicked line drive hit doug fister right in the head there. that looks painful. but he said he was fine and pitched six scoreless innings against the giants. the giant hs their rally caps on and a double play scores the first run of the game for san francisco. the giants got an insurance run in the eighth and their bullpen clo
strategy, but he doesn't live in the rose garden yet and no one has told him, chris. doug is absolutely right. he's not good on his feet. his last few interviews have been disasters. he was terrible with david gregory. when paul ryan sat down with chris wallace, he was hammered on the absence of details in their plans. romney couldn't even handle bret baier from fox. they can't even go to fox -- when they go on fox -- nobody blows fox who is a republican except these two guys. so i think it's the prevent defense except he's not sitting on a lead. he has a narrow popular vote lead. but he's behind in most of the swing states. he's behind in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, nevada. you know, i'm not sure this is so safe, but it's probably the safest course for him. >> well, i think bret baier is pretty good in that interview. one reason romney might steer clear of sit-down interviews, he's been barraged with questions about senate candidate richard mourdock. take a look. >> governor, do you wish mourdock would pull that ad? >> which way are we going? >> governor, do you disavow mourdock's comments
. joining me now, doug glast brinkley, historian. doug, let's -- i want to get this out of the way. it is a remarkable thing, the piece is long, it is detailed and yet, one word the president uttered as an aside has gottens the attention. are you surprised or did you know when you wrote the piece that might be the thing that would grab folks is. >> i was surprised. when it first came out, the associated press and "the washington post" focused on president talking about the supreme court and affordable care yesterday. even yesterday that hit the blog and had its day of infamy and seems to be repeating today. >> now i want to talk about -- i like the day of infamy. some of the other stuff that's in there. and one of the things i was struck by in the interview is, the level -- i don't want to say it's distaste barack obama has of mitt romney but he's dismissive saying this is a guy who doesn't believe what he says. could you get that from the interview? did the tone and his willingness to say that as bluntly as he said it surprise you? >> the oval office interview took place for 45 mi

or red in part because of transplants like doug who moved here from new york. >> you're asking about the analogy with the barbecue, whether it's vinegar based or the tomato based, the thing i notice here is people are steeped in the way they've always done it. very -- very traditional. zbr but tradition can be upended. >> you're 70 -- >> 74. >> yes. >> you're black. you saw the first black president elected. yet you're sitting here saying i'm not sure. >> i'm not sure. but head west to lexington. the politics in this part of the state is mostly red. just like the sauce. >> they know the best politics. this is where to find it here in lexington, north carolina. it's going to make it harder to do what --? >> to survive. last g around president obama won north carolina by 14,000 votes. >> who are you voting for? >> obama. >> who did you vote for before? >> obama. >> why are you voting for him again? >> because he's doing a good job. >> i think obama needs needs to put his man pants on. >> presidential politics like barbecue, split down the middle. it will likely go late into the evening
. take a look at what they mean by that. up next, presidential historian doug brinkley of how disasters affected elections and republican congressman steve king says he wants to avoid a repeat of hurricane katrina. he says relief money was spent on bags and massage parlors. one of the things we thought you should know. but first, today nate silver of "the new york times" forecasted president obama had 77% chance of winning re-election and now 299 votes and governor romney 239. >>> welcome back. president obama was supposed to be in ohio today before canceling the visit due to hurricane sandy and the damage caused. despite being off the trail, the latest poll of ohio voters gives the president a five-point edge and seems to show growing optimism about the economy of white working class voters and could be the reason seeing him hold on to the lead and, quote, if you look at the body language of the campaign hard not to conclude they believe they're behind. and if they believe ohio is a be all end all then they're behind. let's bring in editor mark murray. before we talk about the poll, i
and doug fister for the tigers. >>> even though a full season is not a reality for locked out nhl players the islanders will move 26 miles to the brand new ba barclays center. >>> nfl has embraced pink throughout october for breast cancer awareness month. sunday night refs will throw pink flags from an 8-year-old boy who wrote a letter to roger goodell. >>> diego mardona was one of the greatest soccer players when he helped argentina. these days he looks a little different. he's 51 put still put on a show in a soccer stadium in india yesterday. dancing for the crowd. voted the top soccer player of the 20th century still has mad soccer skills. >>> for a look at the weather, bill karins continuing to track sandy. >> i had someone ask me, what are the odds if sandy surprises us and heads out to sea, i would say 20%. locked in 80% this storm will make a direct impact and make landfall from the mid-atlantic to northeast. the latest predictions taking the storm parallel into the southeast coast. not a direct impact from carolinas down to florida but from chesapeake up through new england late m
williams. the bucs go up 20-7. third quarter now, bucs up by ten. freeman hits doug martin on the screen pass. he weaves through traffic and outruns the defense for a 64-yard touchdown to put the bucs up 27-10. that's bad. this is closing minutes of the third quarter. things are getting chippy. the officials come over to break it up. but allen gets the worst of it and ends up with a bloody nose and the bucs win 36-17. >> i could never believe yesterday morning when you were saying that the bucs were actually going to cover the spread. you said they were going to win outright and pound the vikings in minnesota. i never saw it coming. >> i told you. weird. >> mika knows her stuff. mika the great. let's talk about the most overrated players in football. >> yes. >> doesn't look good for new york jets. >> this is tim tebow we're talking about. added another award to his trophy case. this one isn't very prestigious. tebow was chosen as the most overrated player in the league. 34% gave the distinction to tebow who has yet to score a touchdown as a role player for the jets. but tebow can take co
. tigers hope for a better outcome tonight when necessity send doug fister to the mound against mad some baumgardner. >>> president obama won't get a chance to see a whole lot of the world series but when asked to choose between tigers and giants, the president did not hesitate to pick a winner. >> this is one of those presidential decisions, no matter what you say it's going to upset some people. you're going to vegas, going to place a bet on the world series, who you got? >> they're both great teams. detroit beat -- they beat my white sox out of a pennant, so they're an outstanding team. i will say that, you know, i have spent a lot of time in detroit lately, and, you know, i didn't want to let detroit go bankrupt. >> right, right. >> so, there's -- in this particular world series i may be a little partial. >> san francisco fans might not be thrilled with that pick but it's probably not going to cost him the state of california, i'm guessing. >>> coming up at the top of the hour on "morning joe" with 12 days until the electric, wall-to-wall swing state campaigning as new polling from o
, former spokesman for the democratic congressional campaign committee doug foreign nell and from the now romney superpack. so we could really walk out on the house debate. ann i want to put up our top ten markets, these are the most saturated ad markets for the eighth through the 14th. norfolk, cleveland, florida, virginia plus ro colorado. flohva and then colorado, iowa, wisconsin those are the six. >> this is the map, this is the place that we all want to visit and the people there probably want to flee by now. we have known this map from the outset and the map hasn't changed. that's one of the interesting things. despite all the ups and downs, we are in this same map. >> that is an interesting point that, is that a yellow flag for romney? he's doing well, everything's popped for him. but you know the map hasn't changed. >> but the map has gotten better. before the debate, we saw it tight. si since the debate, he's not within the margin of error, he's going to be up. i think going into the 12re67, he's exactly where he needs to be. >> you're not concerned that the maps never really exp
debating, jobs ratings, and the washington post editor, doug hattaway, and sarah taylor, former senior aide to president george w. bush. so welcome, i'll start with you, anne, let's all take a look at what happened earlier. >> by the time the debate was over, mitt romney seemed a completely moderate centrist figure, who showed up as mitt romney the governor, not as mitt romney, the candidate. >> except everything he mentioned wasn't true. so does that start to take its toll over the next few months? >> i just think that that is unjust, to say that -- >> when you say my plan covers pre-existing con i think they will call whatever mitt romney said in the debate, untruthful. no matter how the debate had gone. it just so happens they take extreme issue with certain things, the fact-checkers took issue with, as well, it is a lot to hang their hats on, but away they have to go on at this point. >> are they saying that mitt romney and paul ryan are ignoring the facts? has it gotten any traction? >> it is picking up a story line going on in the campaign. and with mitt romney, people just do not tru
have doug talking about strategic misjudgments, sort of doug's middle game name. >> that's a long middle name. >> it's wordy but he can fairly tie him into this whole crew that's basically his same foreign policy advisers, right? >> he can. and we will talk a little -- in a second about the president's foreign policy. melissa, in terms of how the debate has played out this week, after the first debate it was, you know, self- -- the president's self-emulated, romney won hands down. a collective sense that the president had done significantly better, maybe not the rolled down gates pulled down over the romney gates many hoped. peggy noonan writes that -- what do you make of that? is the president not winning the post-debate week? >> he's president. so that means that his role as the president, as the person actually governing, is always going to overshadow sort of whether it's the playfulness of the al smith dinner or the performative aspects of the debate. let me be clear i think that's good. you know, maybe it's not good at this particular moment for this particular campaign, but
for the president over mr. etch-a-sketch, but doug brinkley's piece offers a quite different view. can i quote, obama must be judged by the things he won't allow to happen on his watch. wall street thieving, bush-style nis c fiscal irresponsible, the reversal of roe v. wade. if he loses romney and ryan will crush his initiatives without remorse. that's right, isn't it? if you're a young person who is currently covered by health care, you can kiss that good-bye. if you're a young person who is relying on pel grants, you can kiss that good-bye. >> if you take mitt romney at his word, there's no way the industry will accept it unless you have a mandate which he also dislikes. his promises or at least the things he says he likes doesn't stack up with what he says he will deliver. to doug's point, if you think the reforms that this president and the last congress enacted are going to stop wall street thieving, you're smoking something that rolling stone probably understands very well. you know, this will not stop wall street thieving. the fact that wall street hates this president may be a feather
and talk more about this. doug authorize nell and erin mcpike, reporter for real clear politics. erin, i want to start with you. as we talk about what's going on on the campaign trails as well as sandy spinning in the atlantic, according to chuck todd virginia and new hampshire may not see the two candidates until election day because the president may have so much going on in washington right now to oversee this storm. mitt romney is focusing his campaign in ohio. with the president having to focus his time on this, erin sdshgs he have a messaging advantage that he gets to be the president in this situation? what do you stay? >> he absolutely might. he can't get out to swing states today, tomorrow, and maybe not for the rest of the week if the devastation is very bad. he's going to be having bill clinton pinch-hit for him in many of the swing states throughout the week, and that may help them double-down a little bit with bill clinton down on the trail and president obama in washington. remember, mitt romney gets to shuttle back and forth between ohio and wisconsin, which are the two mo
of transplant like doug who moved here from new york. >> you're asking about the analogy with the barbecue whether it's vinegar-based or tomato-based. the thing i notice here is people are kind of steeped in the way they've always done it. very traditional. >> but even tradition can be upended. you're. >> 74. >> caller: you're black. >> yes. >> reporter: you saw the first black president electnd and you're saying i'm not sure. >> reporter: you're not sure. >> no. >> reporter: so there are no stereotypes. >> no. >> reporter: here, the politics are mostly red, just like the sauce. >> well, they know the best barbecue and the best politics. this is where you find it right here in lexington, north carolina. >> i think the taxes are going to con usually go higher. and it's going to cost you. >> cost me, yes. >> and make it harder to do what? >> survive. >> last yeerg president obama won by just 14,000 votes. >> who are you going to vote for? >> obama. >> who did you vote for before? >> obama. >> why are you voting for him again? >> because he's doing a good job. >> reporter: come election date
for 2013 once again. that's the big concern. we spoke with the ceo, doug observ observ observ observer hom. when you start looking at what's happening in the rest of -- in europe, that's the biggest concern. he does say that europe -- the u.s. is going to be okay. china is going to be okay. europe is still the big problem zone. and he pointed out that if we go over the fiscal cliff, well, then all bets are off. so we're hoping for some sort of solution to that. in the meantime, it's wait and see for the election, wait and see for the january fiscal cliff, as well. >> all right. becky quick, thank you much. >>> next, from iran to libya, to cuba, taking a deep dive into the foreign policy plate. "the daily rundown" will be back in 30 seconds. >>> now a deep divinto the foreign affairs challenges. we begin with iran. the white house this weekend denied reports that the u.s. has agreed to engage in one-on-one nuclear talks. this issue could galvanize republicans, as well as jewish voters fearful of the fallout from israel. the jewish voters are a key constituency here in florida. for them, thi
. it's effective politics in virginia. doug wilder became governor because of it, some would argue. but does that make it talking to white males -- >> you've got to remember the district we ran. you know, in richmond last year, they went for the transvaginal ultrasounds and all this craziness. with the seventh district, our exit poll says it's now 68%. you know, eric cantor is one of these guys who talks about, you know, government intrusion and how we don't need government intrusion. but yet, you know, he has been with todd akin on 32 different bills pushing this government intrusion into women's individual rights. >> i want to go back and close with a thought that we opened with, independents. can you win virginia and lose independents if you're a democrat? is there enough of this democratic get out the vote machine that you were touting to me off camera to overcome losing independents even narrowly? >> you know, without question. and there's something else at work here in virginia that people don't talk about. i mean, you're aware of this. i mean, the guest tv guy ever in the hi
with "rolling stone" and doug brinkley, the historian and the editor apparently asked him, as he was leaving the oval office -- follow me here -- he asked him about little kids and how kids react and obama grinned and said i do very well in the key demographic ages 6 to 12, i'm a killer. and they're joking around and the editor thought about lower the voting age and obama said, the president said, you know kids have good instincts they look at either guy and say, well, that's a bser, i can tell. i cleaned it up. i don't know how this plays but it seems this is the president unvarnished and "rolling stone" had it on the record and put it up. >> that's clearly a moment talking about what happens in the world that isn't the high intensity stakes of politics. my 10-year-old asked about the 47% because he's heard it and learned it. but that's a moment of the president showing his humor and affection for kids and that's a great moment. >> let me interrupt. brian williams with the president, traveling with him for two days, is on the phone. you asked the president how he feels about mitt romney and
's squawk on the street david faber, and doug lebda. good to have you both onboard this morning. it seems to me housing always seems like a separate issue that maybe didn't get talked about as much. is that retrospectively incorrect? because it does seem so fundamental, david. >> it's fundamental in the economy in many ways. certainly helped us during the boom period in housing that we saw adding to gdp, construction, and so many other things. people refinancing their homes. it hasn't been discussed that much, you're right, particularly given that the president seems to have backed off a bit, perhaps, on a number of plans that would've relieved people from mortgages that they otherwise are not in a great position to pay but there was a lot of political opposition to that. but housing is starting to come back. we are starting to see real signs of not just stabilization but even perhaps some growth. doug can speak, i'm sure, to some more of the specifics about what we're seeing, but even new home sales, existing home sales, and prices finally have not just stabilized. >> steve rattner? >> t
. doug foye who ran environment and economic development together, bob posen senior financial executive. so he's a real born chief executive. and that's a pretty handy qualification for president of the united states. >> it is. but is mitt romney the campaigner, then, different from mitt romney the elected official? >> i think he's fairly gentle on the campaign trail. he's certainly gentle and decent and private. he's one of the most decent guys that i've ever met. people are asking me these days, well, is mitt the moderate going to show up for work on day one if he's elected president. my answer is yes. as i say i know him very well. i've spent a lot of time with him. ridden around the back of a car with him in new hampshire. gone door-to-door in new hampshire with him. i've seen him a lot with just him and ann. and he's a fabulous guy. he's a guy who does not have any unattractive edge. >> so then is mitt the moderate held to task by the far rights of his party on socialish zblus. >> i don't know. i'm not a movement conservative and i'm certainly not a conservative on social issues. i
of the second. doug pfister takes a line drive right off the head. it bounces into the outfield with a hit. amazing he pfister would stay in the game. he said after the game that he's fine. >> of course, he was tasting purple the rest of the night, but still, the guy has a hard head. >> scoreless in the sixth. giants' starter madison ba baumgartner gets omar infante. gregor blanco lays down the beautiful bunt just inside the foul line to load the bases. giants would eventually score in the inning. that's all they'd need. they'd win game two by a final of 2-0 and go up 2-0. the series moves to detroit tomorrow for game three. >> finally, tim tebow in the news again. he's added yet another award to his trophy case, but this one, not quite as good as the heisman. in a recent "sports illustrated" survey of players, tim was overwhelmingly chosen as the most overrated player in the league. they gave him the dubious distinction of being the most overrated. he's yet to score a touchdown as a role player with the jets this season, but they're not giving him a chance so you can't knock him for that.
they send doug pfister to the mound. >> crazy after the game, they flash on the big jumbotron, tim smoke. it's an interesting park out there. >> it is. it's a great place. >> seriously, you're wearing that tie, in tribute. >> i like to think of the giants as a team of destiny. i like to think of this tie as a tie of destiny. >> keep thinking. >> president obama was on "leno" last night, talked about a wide range of things including this world series. here's what he said. >> this is one of those presidential decisions. no matter what you say, it's going to upset some people. you're going to vegas. you going to place a bet on the world series? who do you got? >> well, they're both great teams. detroit beat -- [ cheers ] -- they beat my white sox out of a pennant. they're an outstanding team. i will say that, you know, i have spent a lot of time in detroit lately. you know, i didn't want to let detroit go bankrupt. >> right, right. [ cheers and applause ] >> in this particular world series, i may be a little partial. >> but i want to point out one other thing. before tonight's game two of the w
